I consistently work with my colleagues who are mental health providers to screen patients for Gambling Disorder and we have, as a practice, increased awareness. There are only a very few Gambling Treatment providers in Minnesota (out of thousands of providers both for mental health and SUD) there are only 19 state certified gambling treatment providers. But the need is greater. I do periodic surveys of the SUD clients in out clinic, and find on average, about 30% of those patients will endorse at least one and often three of the questions on the Brief Biosocial Gambling Screen, but have not addressed Gambling Disorder as a co-occurring issue.
